    Is it for a male or female? Somebody you just want as a friend or a little more?

    I'll let the ladies take over from here

    I will say that while you were getting to know her, if she mentioned something in passing that she would like and you remember it. Shows you were paying attention. Of course jewelry is always good

    True (about diamonds). Might be a little early if the relationship has "just begun", but you never know... It depends...

    It is also good to find out what she is crazy about, and treat her to it (even if you are not so fond of it... yet).

    I agree with Geno, diamonds early into the relationship may freak her out a bit. Especially if you aren't sure how much more she wants with you.

    The best gift would be something that you know she'd love - doesn't have to be traditionally romantic like candy or jewelry. Does she love to read? Pick up a first edition of her fave book. Love a particular sports team? Pick up tickets to a game for the two of you. Find something that is personal. That will show her just how much you care for her, you listen to her and recognize her interests.

    Of course, tossing in something a little romantic so she knows your interests are serious would be okay too. Flowers are always a hit with me.

    Print out your own gift certificate for a night out dining, dancing, whatever and add it to some flowers.

    Or, find a red bow, get naked and attach the bow on the most obvious place on your body. Worked for me once when I forgot to buy something.

    Take her out for a special dinner at a romantic restaurant and then a concert or play that you both will enjoy. Afterward you can go dancing. Very romantic.

    I agree that jewelry is a bit much early on in a relationship.

    Please don't let Ana (south beach annie ) chime in on this thread. She will have your friend in a wardrobe of heart thongs in no time.

    I would suggest the romantic dinner option. Not just some place, but some place amazing like a 5 star French restaurant. Candles, romantic atmosphere, a table off to yourselves, etc. When you pick her up, flowers in hand. Nothing from the grocery store, please... the highest quality flowers you can find, trust me, women are not impressed by grocery store or 7-11 flowers, lol.

    Ah, I got it!

    Give her a gift certificate to one of your merchants and be sure to include a link with your affiliate ID in it.

    Okay, Okay, that would explain why my wife of 27 years does not get excited about Valentines day any more I guess.

    Depends on the store.

    Diamonds may be a little over the top. Maybe a new BMW instead?

    Ditto that. And a card for her to remember you by once the flowers are dead and the dinner digested. Even I get sappy over cute hand-written notes.

    Billy as a naughty nurse OR french maid... interesting mental images... lol

    Back to topic... yes, something she mentioned she likes that you remembered, with a handwritten note, given to her at a nice dinner, that would be a great Valentine's gift for a first valentines day...
